Re: Gundam Age Original Plan?

According to a few sources (That claim to link to a Newtype article) Gundam Age was originally supposed to be aired over a year and a half. At approximately 78 episodes that would have been the longest single Gundam series, and probably longer than most other Real Robot genre series(Only Dougram at...

Re: What kind of education does a mecha engineer need?

This discussion line is in regards to Gundam AGE. Kinda, just that it ignores internal structure and somehow gives out rounded/sharpened edges when the original mould(?) is a lot more like a series of cuboids lumped together gets on my nerve. Also whatever things it chucks out can simply be pre-made...

Re: IBO MSV

All Gundams have the AV System during the Calamity War. That was one of the things that made them special since the Twin Reactors require AV to bring out their full potential. They could however be removed later, as was the case with Brewers' Gusion setup, before Tekkadan reinstalled it for their Re...

Re: Aeolia Schenberg's plan to push human evolution

What do you think Celestial Beings used to attract the Observers to their cause, especially the first benefactors who would never enjoy the fruits of their sponsorship? I mean, the daily cost of running Celestial Beings/Fereste must have been really big. Padding it out for two centuries, faciliting...

Re: Aeolia Schenberg's plan to push human evolution

As far as I could remember, one of the 00V Senki chapters mentioned that what specifically causes Innovation is GN Particles in Trans Am state. Ian mused he was a little worried about the ESF possessing this system after Season 2 because it can be abused. Ribbons also wanted Original GN Drives by th...

Re: Which era of Gundam is your favorite?

It's an especially odd complaint given how the women in the series were drawn, which was a VERY fanservice-y style that left no doubt the character designer likes his women on the curvy side. ​On the fanservice women note, personally I don't think most of the 00 female designs are like that. I woul...

Re: Which era of Gundam is your favorite?

i just recently looked at Gundam 00. The concept is nice...but i simply can't get past the feminine character designs for the male heroes and the main mobile suits and some of the male side characters. it's like they had an agenda with doing this. it kinda takes me out of the show abit. other than ...

Re: Which era of Gundam is your favorite?

Eh... probably either the Anno Domini or Post-Disaster works, 2007-2017 AU stuff. Yeah, the HD era would be my favorite too. 00 and IBO are my top favorites personally. I love the mecha designs of 00, AGE and IBO in general. The mecha lore of 00 and IBO I especially enjoyed too. The UC releases dur...

Re: Gravitational Sensors

I don't see how a gravitational sensor would be useful for milssiles since they tend to be very low mass. Then again I'm unfamiliar with Dragonar in general so maybe something specific to that world. Unless they are needed to detect something that generates gravitational waves. The Ahab Reactors fro...

Re: The Official 00 Mecha Thread Mk XVIII

Thanks for this, sounds really cool. I like the idea of localized Trans Am or limited ones that can use during limited actions.

Using a GN Drive Tau is also a cool idea compared to their usual MO of using GN Condensers as the main powersource for their older models.

Re: Code Geass: Lelouch of the Resurrection

​ Enjoyed the movie. Wish it wasn't an alternate reality though. I just ignore Shirley's one pointless 20 second scene plus the two other times she was mentioned and pretend its a continuation of the TV series. It is pretty easy to do mentally since the movie is pretty much 99% in sync with the TV S...

Re: Evangelion's Netflix Dub

All I can say is that I really love the anime, regardless of whether it did change anime or not. Just enjoyed the story and setting (including EoE) despite me myself personally rejecting Anno's message.

That's not indicative of a problem with the film... that's just a boneheaded move on your friend's part. It's not the fault of the film if you go see a direc...

Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Anime Thread Mk I

Depends on what you mean by time travel. Time manipulation of sorts does happen but not something like traveling to the past or anything like that. Spoilers for some minor plot details, just to be safe. As far as I can remember for the movie, Unicorn is confirmed to reverse time for the mobile suit ...

I just finished watching Narrative in cinema and while I'm not the biggest UC fan in the world, I throughly enjoyed this. Greatly paced, good battle animation and surpringly enjoyable story in scene than on paper. Reading some of the plot points beforehand, I wasn't expecting much but by the end of ...

I honestly think this is actually an anime but with an App of some sort backing it up for some reason or another.
I suspect the part about microtransactions might be that reason. Seems like an appealing monetization option for Bandai with this format.

Re: The Official Gundam Narrative Anime Thread Mk I

As I understand it, it only confirms the ability to reverse entropy/time of specific objects as opposed to actually traveling back in time, like turning a generator back into its pre-assembled state in the present day. And this ability is refered to as “turn back time” and “manipulate time” on one o...

The problem is the fact that Tokyosaurus provided no source for the clip so I'm calling BS on the claim. It was probabaly a mistranslation like the Thunderbolt interview. Wasn’t the time manipulation ability of Unicorn confirmed in the Narrative novelization translation by Zeonic though? I only ski...
